I was watching (or rather listening) to this while I was working. Very nice. I didn't figure it out, didn't get to see all of it, but the killer's attitude at the end was creepy. He did a good job acting crazy.

Almost at the end when I figured the killer. Just one thing, in real life, if I found electrical tape at the beginning and then the phone lines cut, I just just wire them back, but I guess then no movie. I enjoyed it. A little hammy, but then I need that sometimes.
